with israel. thank you. what happens with egypt will be the big turning point here. does egypt remain on the sidelines? egypt today condemned this action by the israelis. the question is what else will egypt do? we will have continuing coverage of the situation there. mideast security expert joins us live to explain the implications of the action there today, where the united states stands on it. and president obama visited some of the people after -- still hurting after hurricane sandy. we'll hear from him and one of the people dealing in the aftermath. the crisis in israel, and the crisis in the aftermath of the storm, those are both coming up. >>> continuing to watch live images coming in from the gaza. this is 10:23 p.m. obviously it is hours later there and night fall has been with them for many hours. our correspondent mentioned that the israeli air force are flying this, and they have hit a lot of targets today. the question is what happens with ground troops. let's bring in the former intelligence officer of defense. mike, good of you, thank you. let's start with the ground tr
.s. relationship with egypt. but, first, the former c.i.a. director, general petraeus, today, testified on the deadly attack in benghazi, libya, that killed four americans, including our ambassador. the hearings happened hype closed doors so we do not have recordings of the general's testimony. according to the republican congressman peter king of new york he said from the beginning he believed benghazi was a terrorist attack. the c.i.a.'s talking points also called it terrorism. congressman king added, someone or some group, then, removed the terror reference but it is not clear who did that. >> the original talking points...there were indications finally at the end indications of extremists although there was cheerly evidence to the c.i.a. that it was clear there were pirates involved. susan rice said a spontaneous protest over an anti-islam video sparked the attack but democratic lawmakers say that can be explained. >> what is very clear is that ambassador rice used the talking points the intelligence committee had all signed off on. >>trace: they added that the c.i.a. approved the t
alert. more trouble in the middle east. this is in cairo, egypt. you can see the teargas wafting through the streets as protestors take to tahrir square and other places to protest against that country's new president, mohammed morsi. he has just assigned himself sweeping new powers. this comes after he helped broker that peace between -- that cease-fire between hamas and israel. perhaps thinking that he is suddenly a leader on the world stage he decided to announce that all of the decisions he has made since assuming office in january cannot be challenged by the egyptian courts. as you can see a number of especially young people in egypt none too pleased about this. they have been protesting in cairo and alexandria and other places. morsi of course an islamist, a member of the muslim brotherhood, the ideological ally of hamas. it is yet to be seen what the response will be from the obama administration to these new powers that he has awarded himself. he has also ordered a new trial for his predecessor hosni mubarak. we will continue to watch the troubles developing inee lit up and the p
continued at this hour in cairo in meetings reportedly taking place involving the prime minister of egypt, the prime minister of turkey as well as the emir trying to come up with a cease-fire there are indications the talks are continuing but here on the ground they plan to implement some kind of ground incursion into gaza if necessary. the military has been offered to draft as many as 57,000 reservists. you can see roads are closed off and see and hear an increased amount of military activity. if there is not a diplomatic solution soon it looks like the violence is going to be ratcheted up. >> heather: david lee miller. thank you. >> gregg: let's take a look. so far 57 rockets have landed inside israel. that doesn't include the 25 rockets that have been intercepted by israel's iron dome. since the started the pillar of defense over 400 rockets and miles have hit hundreds more have been intercepted. how exactly does the iron dome missile defense work? they calculate each rocket's trajectory and only intercepted those that will hate target. this is iron dome to a vast array of sensors to d

: in the middle of all of this, it's a very unstable and frankly, unpredictable egypt. and it could be the key. >> yeah. egypt is absolutely a key player in this. right now it's new muslim brotherhood president, morsi, appears to be playing both sides. he has reportedly quietly given the green light to his intelligence services to put pressure on hamas to scale back on those rocket attacks, while publicly he is sending his prime minister to the gaza strip tomorrow in what will clearly be a show of solidarity with the palestinians. now, the egyptian calculation may be that by having their prime minister there, they will cause a pause in the fighting because israel will be reluctant to carry on with the air strikes and launch any kind of ground invasion while such a high ranking egyptian politician is there. that might, of course, help the palestinians. on the other hand, any pause in the fighting also gives a little more time for diplomacy to start work. but watching what egypt's leaders say and do in the next few days is going to be key in what happens next in this very tense situation. shep.
saying there will be a an aments early as tonight. from egypt they are saying israeli aggression will cease. israeli air strikes continue to pound away at the gaza strip. we are at over 110 deaths inside the gaza strip. much of hamas and islamic jihad infrastructure has been damaged as has been their ability to launch rockets. that was the point, to destroy their ability to launch rockets. also to take out jihad military wings which they have done as well. secretary of state hillary clinton will land here in israel. meet with prime minister netanyahu and we have heard a couple high-ranking officials here in israel including the german foreign minister and the unitetheunited nations secretary-general. the actual cease-fire announcement could happen in egypt as the fighting continues here. bill: what have you observed in the past several hours where you are? what's happening on the ground, leland? >> reporter: you would think in the few hours before a cease-fire things would lighten up. not in the middle east. everybody wants to get in as many shots as they can. the israeli militar
speaking today from air force one with leaders from israel,ro egypt, and turkey in a scramble to avoid further escalation of the violence. so let me welcome israel's council general in new york andc ask the ambassador now will israel invade gaza? >> well, the mandate that the israel defense forces we see from the israeli government is to remove the threat that w will be of strategic rockets. it a threatens life in our southern region. the government gave a mandate to remove that strategic threat. this mandate is not limited in time or scope. it's search a possibility, and obviously at this stage of the game we don't know yet. >> gaza, one of the most densely populated areas on earth, inevitably there will be more civilian b casualties. don't you worry about international pressure on israel. >> well, right now we enjoy a large degree of international le jet mlegitlegitimacy. the president expressed his support about e israel's right d need to defend itself. however, we are very concerned with the possibility of nbt innt people being harmed as a result of our action. the government instr
are coming up through egypt into the gaza strip. there is a report that came out over the weekend. we'll take it one more step. the issue of iran over here to the east. the reports that iran are shipping weapons and rockets into sudan and truck north into egypt and into the gaza strip. if that's the argument you are making how do you stop this once and for all. >> our problem is not our border gaza but other country's borders with gaza. among the rockets being fired at us come directly from iran. hama terrorists have trained with the iranians. there is a strong connection. i can't see your map. gaza looks like a small place. but this is no more a struggle between small israel and small gaza and the cuba missile crisis was a struggle between the u.s. and cuba. all these groups to one degree or another are supplied and funded by the terrible regime in iran. bill: we come back to the basic question, that's what the world is waiting to know. will there be an invasion of gaza or not? >> we have to keep that option open. when you have half of your population in bomb shelters or a 15-second run to t
was in egypt squarely on the side of israel and united states putting pressure on hamas. that is not the case now. as hamas is launching rockets into israel they're not hearing anything from egypt. all they're hear something support from egypt and condemnation from israel. the thing that israel has is the iron dome defense missile system is defending from some missiles but certainly not all. they're saying only thing that which bring sees fire if hamas stops firing. they don't seem interested to do that and there is no pressure from egypt to do that as well. bill? bill: leland vittert on the border between israel and gaza city. we'll talk with ambassador dan gillerman live in tel aviv. that is coming up in 10 minutes. martha: back here at home and the issue of the fiscal cliff as president obama meets with congressional leaders at the white house today. been a busy week for meetings at the white house. they will discuss a compromise perhaps to stop the so-called fiscal cliff. there is new reports out there, signs some willingness to compromise perhaps on the issue of raising taxes but here is
. >> let me ask you, what's your reaction to egypt's prime minister's role in this very difficult stand-off knowing that the muslim brotherhood dominates the egyptian government right now? >> i think the egyptian must decide, must take a stand. in one hand, they come to you, to the u.s. and to europe and ask for a lot of money. on the other hand, they endorse the hamas. only yesterday prime minister of egypt came to gaza. he did not condemn the attacks on the israeli civilian population. they think egypt must take a hold here and to tell the hamas, if you want the backing of egypt, stop fighting. stop shooting missiles into israel much it is very clear. we do not know what the hamas wants. we have no sentiment in gaza today. no occupation, no blame game. why they are doing it? it is pure hatred against jews who live in israel and we are expect egypt to take a different role. >> i've been following prime minister netanyahu's messages on twitter over the past 24 hours. and he's been writing that the terrorists are committing what he calls double war crimes. they fire at three civilians an
issue is egypt, they are supporting the palestinian tph-s this matter. we are looking at the results of the arab spring. jon: egypt now run by the muslim brotherhood of which hamas is an offshoot. >> that's right. morisi has come out in support of the palestinians. even though the rocket attacks, this violence was initiated by the palestinians. you have the camp david aeu koerbgsdz thaccords, the arab spring. the middle east is a mess. look in iran the centrifuges are still spinning. secretary panetta, and secretary clinton are in asia right now. that pivot, are we pivoting away from the challenges and our interests in the middle east, which is really a mess. jon: you worry we are leaving the israelis high and dry on this one? >> it could be. i don't know exactly what is going on with the administration. they have mad said some of the right things in sue mort of supporting israel. we are reaping the fruits of our labors in the middle east. and our policies in the middle east has been a real failure. if we are shipping through the pacific where are we going to have the planes and tank
that egypt's prime minister plans to visit gaza, gaza, that is, tomorrow. now, don't forget a peace agreement that keeps israel and egypt on good terms. there were real questions about whether that was going to be honored by the new muslim brotherhood president of egypt, and now we find out that this egyptian leader is going to go visit gaza in the midst of rising, escalating tensions between gaza and the israelis. now we want to get back to re land visit earth who is live near the israel/gaza border. so basically, leland, the rockets kept showering into israel, somebody, the head of hamas -- they call him hamas' osama bin laden, basically, took credit for the bloodshed being unleashed in israel. and israel bombed that guy, killed that guy, and now it seems to be escalating from there. >> reporter: exactly, megyn. his assassination happened yesterday around 4 p.m., and hamas came out and said israel has declared war and, quote, opened the gates of hell. and those kinds of words are not things that are thrown around lightly all over the middle east. and definitely as we saw it today, hamas liv
territory. >> can you speak to egypt's role? there was word that egypt's prime minister -- egypt and israel have had this agreement and then in place for years. once mohammed morsi took over as the president, and he was for the muslim brotherhood, many started to question if you will honor that agreement. it is critical to peace in the middle east. your thoughts now that they are getting involved to some extent? >> first to welcome the peace agreement between israel and egypt is for the mutual interest. i think it is the bedrock of stability in this region. it is important that we really keep that in mind and any move on the egyptian side to try to help out in this situation would be looked upon favorably. but first and foremost responsibility for any government is its citizens. we cannot continue with a situation like that. hamas, in a sense, has turned from the whole region. they are really the enemies of peace and we should really try to work together to make sure that the military infrastructure is weekend to such a manner that we will be able to sit down with moderate palestinians in o
and secretary secretary clinton who praised him for becoming part of the deal. not everyone in egypt is happy with president morsi. including him grack the power and putting himself above the judiciary among other things is protest in egypt about that not only for the muslim brotherhood but also against him and the muslim brotherhood of the party and now president morsi came out against the treaties with israel and hamas and saying that they need tod continue the islamic jihad movement in order to liberate all occupied territors of israel. things are remarkably calm 41 hours in the cease fire agreement. not one rocket in the past 24 hours and no attacks by the israelies. and the other thing indicating that things are moving forward and the israelies are viewing it tanks are packing exup moving north. they had moved the military down south against the gaza border to threaten a ground invasion ask that's why hamas many people say relented. there was no ground invasion an in israel things are returning to normal and reserve troops and most are part of the reserve. they are now returning to work
to the american people today. >> support from egypt inside the gaza strip this morning. what are your concerns about support coming the other way and supporting hamas? >> well, we are putting pressure on hamas to top the terrorist bombings of israel. if we do, we can deescalate this operation. as for egypt. we hope very much they will continue playing the constructive role that they have v. played in the past in helping us broker a cease-fire so that the terrorist stop rocketing our civilian population. >> are you concerned though coming across the border? we have these large swaths of open area. have we seen movement, troop movements and are there any concerns that this could escalate on the ground as opposed to the air? >> well, we are very concerned about the situation. firing on jerusalem, especially before the holiday season and christmas is a very very serious escalation. we haven't had this kind of occurrence in jerusalem in over half a century. so we need to put a stop to it. we will do everything we can can to defend our population, including using ground troops if we need to. at this

to the video that was shown, it may have been the situation in egypt, may have been as a result of the video that went viral on the internet. but there doesn't appear to be at least that here. maybe it was in response to what was happening in egypt. those kind of questions are still going to have to be answered. this is only the first hearings, chris. three we have scheduled. one of those is going to be a public hearing where these kind of questions are going to be asked. and the individuals involved will be able to tell the american public what did happen. >> chris: so, i just want to make it clear. there will be open hearings where the people will not only have to answer to you but we the american people will see what the answers are. >> absolutely. this is too critical an issue. we have four dead americans, including very prominent and a very outstanding ambassador. and the american people deseven to -- deserve a hearing. at the end of the day we'll have an open hearing where the american people can determine for themselves. and to hear from the folks to make a decision about what they th

president of egypt seems to be supportive of the palestinians. >> not seems to be, it is. he's withdrawn the ambassador. he wants to push the issue into play at the u.n., he's summoned the arab league. morisi does not he ban to attach himself to hamas let alone to the jihaddist groups, smaller ones that are operating in gaza. he has a loan that they are negotiating, a billion-plus in military assistance from the united states. he's got multiple audiences on this. he's going to appear supportive. the question is can he bring his influence? remember, the muslim brotherhood is in fact the foundation stone from which hamas emerged. he does have influence with hamas. they share a common border. hamas has to give some credibility to what he wants and to what he said. the question is, how much time do we have before this escalates to a ground incursion? jon: the palestinians profess they want their own state. hard to argue that you deserve statehood when you're launching rockets at your neighbor. >> you have three states between the mediterranean and the jordan river. have you a weak and dysfun
